Mother charged with letting men rape toddler daughter

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A Kansas City-area woman has been charged with letting men rape her 2-year-old daughter.

Azzie Watson, 25, of Independence, was charged Tuesday with child abuse and endangerment. Bond is set at $75,000. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

WDAF- reports that court documents say Watson's boyfriend recorded Watson talking about repeatedly taking her daughter to a house where her daughter was raped about five times. She says on the recording that she watched. Police were given the recording last month while responding to a rape report at a hospital.

Court documents say Watson told detectives that what she said in the recording was a lie because she was scared of her boyfriend.

Watson also said she didn't know how her daughter contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
